Published: 07 July 2017 (296 Views)
JAH PRAYZAH's continued with his quest to conquer Africa by recording a collabo with popular Nigerian star, Davido.

To underline his status as one of the biggest artists on the continent, Davido's video was posted on YouTube on February 17 this year and was on 19,232,873 (yes 19 million views as of last night.

Davido is currently doing very well with his latest release, Fall, which was posted on YouTube on June 2 and already had 1,691,439 views as of 6pm yesterday.


The two met in Johannesburg two weeks ago and came up with a love song titled, "My Lilly" and whose audio version was produced by DJ Tamuka of Military Touch Movement while the accompanying video was produced by South Africa-based Nigerian producer, Godfather.

The two beautiful women featured prominently in the video are South African models.

Jah Prayzah came up with the script and got Davila to sing in Shona.

Jah Prayzah's latest collaboration is clear testimony that he is now after a more global audience if his videos with Diamond Platinum and Mafikizolo had not already cemented such intentions.

A quick comparison with Davido's hit songs 'If' and 'Fall' shows Jah Prayzah has moved to a new high in his endeavour to wow a more international audience.

The song's baseline on its own shows Jah Prayzah is after the market that follows Davido's music. But he goes a step further to achieve that purpose when he makes Davido sing in Shona.

For a name that big to sing, "zvaimoita iwewe baby kana uneni..." means attention will definitely come to Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, it is Jah Prayzah who sings a lot in English to appeal to everyone outside Zimbabwe.

Jah Prayzah chooses to reach out to Africa with a few verses that appeal to the continent but without throwing his roots and strengths through the window.

Both Jah and Davido sing in Shona to show the origins of the song. Both sing in English to communicate with the world but there is a lot more that will engage the international audience that the languages.

The professional models used in the video, the aura of sophistication and the million dollar appeal of the scenes where the video was shot all spell a serious production that can match the best in the world any day.
